I found these by Googling "medieval chess." While I had to wade
through some shlock, I did find these links which might be of use:
http://www.warehouse23.com/item.html?id=W23-9002 has a reproduction
set which for once is not the Lewis chessmen, though it's
http://history.chess.free.fr/findings.htm which includes images of a
marvelous French set from St. Denis, complete with elephants! I'd
never seen these before.
